Balenciaga S/S 01 Paris
I love this collection a lot

Quote:
PARIS, October 12, 2000

By By Armand Limnander

Every few years, a designer comes along who dramatically alters the way we see fashion, defying categorization, eschewing conventional references and barreling ahead with highly individual ideas. Nicolas Ghesquière is proving to be one of those extremely rare talents.

As always, Ghesquière's collection for Balenciaga was well edited and to the point: no need for endless repetition here. The show opened with short overall dresses with loose black blazers, no-nonsense shirts with diagonal strip insets, tiny miniskirts and slim, sleek trousers. Blousy off-the-shoulder tops and asymmetrically cut, full skirts were generously ruffled, pleated, embroidered and gathered, and twisted and manipulated every which way. Wide belts with insets, dangling cords and strands of pearls broke the silhouette and provided a corsetlike effect.

The initial feeling at Balenciaga was one of blissful, extravagant chaos—but by the end of the show it all fell quietly into place and made perfect sense.

this collection, i believe, started the balenciaga frenzy. one we haven't seen the likes of until balmain. reportedly, this is the collection for which kate moss waived her fee in lieu of receiving pieces directly off the runway.

i only remembered this collection via editorials and vogue us article of ghesquière.
and i do understand, now, why i've always thought this collection was composed of only white.

only the last looks were striking. and they stroke !

(but if you've got some pieces from the first looks, you could try to get them out and get them fitted ...)
